JUPITER, Fla. — A fatal crash involving a semi shut down all southbound lanes of Florida's Turnpike in Jupiter for hours on Friday morning.

According to an FHP crash report, before the wreck occurred there was a vehicle fire that had caused traffic to come to a stop on the southbound lanes of the Turnpike.
A 2022 white Dailmer tractor-trailer combination was stopped facing south in the outside lane.
A 2022 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup was traveling south in the outside lane, approaching the back of the semi.
The report said the driver of the Dodge, a woman whose name has not been released, failed to slow, stop or maneuver her pickup truck to avoid a collision with the tractor-trailer.
The front of the Dodge collided with the rear of semi and traveled underneath the tractor-trailer, becoming entangled.
After the vehicles came to a rest, the woman's pickup truck became fully engulfed in flames. The FHP said the unidentified woman died at the scene.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 57-year-old man, was not hurt.
This is still an ongoing and active investigation, according to the FHP.
All southbound lanes of the Turnpike eventually reopened just after 8:30 a.m.
